Saving a D8H

Post #1 by Mark.Rive » Sun Sep 11, 2011 9:07 pm

Came across this on the tube. If you have 25 odd minutes its well worth watching these guys starting a machine and moving it to home after 30 years of not running due to a faulty pony motor. There are some great on board shots in the last video of them starting her up. I'm sorry if its been posted in the past. its these kind of people I really take my hat off to. Keeping old machines alive :thumbup: Cheers Mark

:claphands: Mark I have just watched all of the videos, fantastic, and to see the excitement from some of the people in the video, you almost feel like you are there, it was nice to see they filmed the loading and off loading fantastic, but my favourite piece has to be that symphony from under the hood, it was music to my ears, :thumbup: :rockon:

Great videos. :thumbup: It gives you a good feeling when you get an old machine up and running after many years of inactivity.Love these videos.We could do with a TV series along these lines with a Salvage Squad type format.
